Senators this morning rejected the nomination of Ibrahim Magu as the
Chairman of antigraft agency, EFCC. According to the senate

received. Details of the security report was however not disclosed.

Senators Dino Melaye and the Majority leader of the house, Ali Ndume,
exchanged hot words when Magu’s screening was called up. Ndume who is
from Borno as Magu, was in support of his confirmation while Melaye was
totally against it.
